Nexwave Telecoms new website garners prestigious Interactive Media Award

SINGAPORE, Thursday, 14 January 2010 – Nexwave Telecoms Pte. Ltd. (“Nexwave Telecoms”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Singapore Exchange Mainboard-listed TeleChoice International Limited, announced today that its new corporate website has received the prestigious Interactive Media Award for Outstanding Achievement. The international award recognises excellence in the design, development and implementation of the website.

The Nexwave Telecoms’ website was launched in November 2009 in tandem with the launch of its full-suite of “Cloud Computing” solutions aimed at the business market. The website was intended to provide a comprehensive gateway to the company’s new and existing offerings with usability and ease of navigation a priority in its conceptualisation. Nexwave Telecoms worked with digital marketing company, WangHé, to design, develop and implement the website.

Said Mr Steven Ng, Managing Director of Nexwave Telecoms, “We believe that as one of the initial points of customer contact, our website had to accurately reflect our image and branding. Hence, the new website had to reinforce the positioning of Nexwave Telecoms as a fully integrated provider of next generation communications and applications solutions with a comprehensive suite of hosted voice solutions and cloud computing applications. We wanted a website that had a corporate look and feel, with a simple user interface and easily accessible menus. The fact that we have been accorded this accolade attests to our success in creating a website that is worthy of being among the best available on the worldwide web.”

The Interactive Media Awards was created by the Interactive Media Council, Inc., a non-profit organisation of leading web designers, developers, programmers, advertisers and other web-related professionals. The awards were designed to elevate the standards of excellence on the internet, offering winners of the coveted awards in each category a boost in marketing and exposure. Judges of the award include some of the biggest names in IT, entertainment, communications and branding and advertising such as Microsoft, Verizon Communications, Time Warner Inc., and Ogilvy and Mather.

Everything the user wants to know about Nexwave Telecoms’ product offerings, services and competencies are contained on the website, which is a one-stop information centre cum online shop.

Mr Ng added, “Besides the features and capabilities for managing user accounts, payment functions and real-time chat interaction with support professionals, we also needed to convey our unique proposition of having the best and most-advanced Software-as-a-Service and Communications-as-a-Service applications in one place. The combination of interactive design elements and use of web technology gave us the opportunity to incorporate a catalogue to give our viewers’ the options to purchase or ‘trial’ our services on a small scale before deciding on a larger implementation.”

Since the launch of the new website, which took three months to conceptualise and implement, it has registered a double increase in hits. The website is available at http://www.nexwavetelecoms.com/.
